Keep your passwords safe

We are surrounded by passwords. Some of them are obvious, some of them are in our daily use, and others are needed once a month. When you use the ATM you have to give your pin. When you login to your computer you might give your password. If you access e-Mails over a webmailer you will be asked for your password.
